UK for participatory polls : Gibson
British High commissioner Robert Gibson has said an active opposition is very important in strengthening democracy. He said they expected a participatory election, however, that didn’t happen.
He made the remark after a meeting with Sylhet city mayor Ariful Haq Chowdhury at the city corporation office on Monday afternoon.
He said the British government was working on to help establish democratic accountability in Bangladesh.
“It is our continuous effort to deepen the relationship between both the countries,” said Gibson.
“Now there needs an active opposition and a free media,” he said.
